Johne's Disease Market Assurance Programs (MAPs) are a key strategy in the control of Johne's disease.
MAPs are voluntary programs for producers which enable them to identify and promote their negative Johne's disease status to their clients. Herds and flocks in the MAP are not accredited as free of Johne's disease, but they have a low risk of being infected compared to Non-Assessed herds and flocks.
Animal Health Australia has announced that as of 1 November 2016, the CattleMAP will cease. Farmers can transition to newly developed programs. Further information is available from Animal Health Australia.
The information below is for veterinarians involved in MAPs in NSW.
